Take your taste buds on a world tour.
Noshwalks will lead The Wonders of Woodside on Friday, Dec. 30, at 1 p.m. A friendly walking-and-sampling adventure, participants will eat and learn about seven distinct cuisines.
The trip’s leader, Myra Alperson, won’t divulge the names of the targeted eateries until the event begins, but she said that the group will stop for a sit-down meal at a Filipino eatery, explore a Bhutanese market, and end with Tibetan/Nepalese savories near the border with Jackson Heights. Other restaurants on the list serve favorites from Bolivia, Colombia, Korea and Ireland.
Alperson will give out complete maps with the listings of all the participating restaurants so customers can return to places they like or retrace their steps at later dates.
The fee is $57 and includes bites but no beverages. Children (ages 6 to 12) pay $20, and those under 6 can attend for free. Meet at John Vincent Daniels Jr. Square at 52nd Street and Roosevelt Avenue, adjacent to the steps leading to the 7 train station.
Founded in 2000, Noshwalks – whose name derives from the Yiddish word for “snack”– organizes 35 different walking-and-eating tours in all five New York City boroughs. The company has established treks in Astoria, Corona, Elmhurst, Flushing, Jackson Heights, Rego Park, Richmond Hill and Ridgewood.
Alperson started in the industry in 1983, when she co-founded Hungry Pedalers Gourmet Tours, which combined urban bicycling and eating adventures.
